Hosteria Las Quintas reminds me of the classic Lost Horizon movie. The hotel sits on a quiet side street in the heart of Cuernavaca. There's really no businesses or restaurants around; it's across the street from a super market and a flower shop that sells spectacular arrangements. The hotel has a huge brick wall around it and you enter through a non-descript gate into the lobby breeze way. Once through the breeze way, you are met by dozens of beautiful sculptures and a garden to beat all gardens. The garden, as previous reviewers have stated, has hundreds of plants and flowers from all over the world. The first area you see is the "bonsai" garden with about 25-30 stunning bonsai trees, all different species and all manicured to perfection. So, the grounds are lovely and in the morning, the breakfast buffet is served in and around the patio. The only restaurant on the property has a roof but no walls so if the weather takes a turn for the worse, as it did on our visit in June, you will be enjoying your meals al fresco. That is really the only negative I can say about this place -- we expected hot sticky summer weather and it rained, no it poured, everyday and even though we were dry while dining, it was freezing cold. Never mind, it was still a magical place. The rooms were plain, nothing terribly exciting nor annoying. Each room has its own air conditioning unit and if it doesn't work properly, just ask the front desk to send someone to show you how to work it. Coffee maker in the room was a nice touch. Service was excellent, the room was clean and safe. Unfortunately the neighborhood is not interesting so you'll need to cab it to the action. There's a large grassy area for the kids to play soccer in and the swimming pools were lovely -- but it was too cold to swim.
